For everyone who misses E!’s The Soup, take heart! Joel McHale is back with The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale, a “weekly half-hour topical series that takes a sharp, absurdist look at pop culture and news from across the globe,” according to Netflix.
Yeah, sounds like The Soup to us too.
McHale announced the new show on Twitter Friday, and debuted his new set, although the reveal seemed to leave everyone, including McHale, wanting.
